The Chewa logical concept of truth
This chapter investigates the Chewa concept of truth through a reflection on the relation between statements and reality/facts. It argues that the Chewa people have a logical concept of truth, which is dependent on the relation between statements and reality, and the requirement of observation. It is argued that for a sentence to be true, it must correspond to facts, and there must be ontological commitment supporting this relation.
